February Track & Sand

February 6, 2017

We are enjoying a very mild winter. The temps are cool and humidity is (sometimes)low. That coupled with a little more daylight in the mornings and evenings, I hope everyone is getting some quality training in. We certainly have plenty of races coming up.
If you didn't notice, the Davidson Dash was rescheduled. It was originally set for Jan 21, but the school board cancelled ALL school activities for safety due to severe weather. The new date is Feb 11; same time, location, etc.
Feb 11th is also the Montessori Pirates & Princesses 5K at The Landing (8:00 am start).
The following Saturday (2/18) is Band on the Run 5K at Niceville High School. The Run/Walk starts at 8:00 in the high school parking lot. Proceeds go to the band. They are out there in the morning playing for the runners; they are very good!
Finishing up the month is Rock the Road at 8:30 at Clement Taylor Park in Destin. There is a 5K Run/Walk and a 10K Run. The Junior League of the Emerald Coast sponsors this event. It is a great training event for Lucky Leprechaun 5K/10K on Mar 11 at The Landing.
As always, race information is on our website; Check for updates prior to the races to make sure nothing has changed. With such a busy race schedule, if you can't run every race, please come out and volunteer. We appreciate any and all help.
Lastly, our monthly board meeting will be this Wednesday, 2/8 at 6:00 p.m. It is at Rick's Crab Trap on Eglin Pkwy (by K-Mart). We will do a Bowlegs planning meeting that night starting at 5:30; same location. If you want to learn more about the club and get involved with Billy Bowlegs 5K (Jun 3), then please come out and join us.
